The overall concept of this photo shoot, eclectic and whimsical charm, was captured perfectly by Rachel Absher Photography and styled by Allison of Ivory Parlor. The idea was to combine the antique vintage furniture pieces from RW Events, the copper metal altar, and the whimsical floral and continue that theme of whimsy throughout.
A rose quartz and tangerine color combination was represented throughout the design and by incorporating copper throughout the event it offers a new trend of metal and an alternative spin on accent decor. See more in the full gallery.
The Illusion Of A Floating Bride
The wooden flower bridal hair piece by Company Forty Two added the perfect touch of pink to the bride's overall look. The gown chosen was a Lazaro strapless silk organza and tulle ball gown from Calvet Couture Bridal. It gives the illusion of the bride floating down the aisle on a cloud of tulle. It has a sweetheart bodice and panels of pleated silk organza with a floral band and sparkling beads along the waistline.
Intimate Romantic Ambience
The vintage upholstered loveseat and chairs give the ceremony space an intimate, romantic ambience. With the vine-covered patio, scaling cacti, and natural greenery, all organic elements of the venue, frame the ceremony space and draw your attention to the copper alter creation. The peonies and roses are situated at the top left corner among the cascading ivory fabric that is draped over the copper poles, creating an unsymmetrical, yet balanced alter arrangement.
"Prickly Pair" Cactus Favors
The cactus used for the wedding favors were inspired by the naturally grown cacti around The Acre’s event property. This is a growing wedding trend in 2016 and adds a unique element of greenery. The vintage trailer is another fun and unexpected accessory found on the venue’s property. Situated near the corner of the one-acre lot, it adds rustic charm and a pop of enchantment to this urban setting.
A Wedding Cake That Pops!
The cake was designed and created by Anna Hightower of Anna Cakes. Each tier has a unique element of design offering bold colors and texture. The center layer has a patina design, continuing with the copper theme. She used a stucco technique on the bottom layer and a smooth, classic finish to the top, allowing the center design to pop!
